(Both Obama and McCain support Georgia and call for financial and military support for them due to the “attack” from Russia. But all the evidence now shows that Georgia attacked it’s own people in the breakaway province of South Ossetia, and killed several Russian Peacekeepers in the process. Have either backed off from their original warmongering claims?)

PARIS, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili had long planned a military strike to seize back the breakaway region of South Ossetia but executed it poorly, making it easy for Russia to retaliate, Saakashvili’s former defence minister said.
from Russian Times, here.
In an interview with CNN, Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has said the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict may have been staged to secure a victory for one of the presidential candidates in the U.S. He says preliminary reports show that U.S. citizens may have been present in the combat zone.
“We have serious reasons to believe that American citizens were right at the heart of the military action. This would have implications for American domestic policy. If this is confirmed, we will have grounds to suspect that somebody in the U.S. has created this conflict to aggravate the situation and create a competitive advantage for one of the presidential candidates”.
Russia’s Prime Minister also commented on the media coverage of the recent events.
“As far as the perception of these events by the general public goes, it depends not only on politicians, but also on how artful they are in controlling the mass media. And our American colleagues do this much better than we do and there’s a lot we can learn from them”.
Putin stressed that Russia did not attack and cannot be portrayed as an aggressor.

After his disgusting display in Israel and in front of the AIPAC conference earlier this year, not to mention his FISA fold and his Off-Shore Oil Drill “compromise” solution, and lest we forget him asking HIS supporters to send money to the defunct Clinton campaign to help them payoff the debts they ran up while distracting the party for 4 additional months and causing a permanent split between us (that will be used latter to explain away why McCain pulled out his “victory”)… after all that… Obama is proving, once again, that he is ready to be the “Spokesman in Chief” for the new Corporate Party of DC.
In the first 4 lines of his statement on the crisis in Georgia, he proves he is just as blinded by the financial powers that be, as is President Bush himself. Sometimes I have to wonder if Obama isn’t really just as stupid as Bush is.
